how to prevent creating individual space automatically


We are new to Confluence cloud. when a user logs in for the first time, i see their own individual space created by default.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

Appreciate your help!

Hello @Vasavi Nagalla ,

I think in Confluence we don't have suck kind of mechanism auto "Space" while login.

May be those creating an personal spaces.

Please check the below link to disable personal space creation for individual users.

Confluence --> Settings --> Global permissions --> 


Remove privileges of "Confluence users" to create personal space and create space permissions. 

This will stop creating spaces by confluence users.



Hi Babu


Thanks for the reply. It works. I was looking at space permissions instead of global. 

All good now!

Hi Babu, Thank you for providing that workaround!

@Vasavi Nagalla

Good afternoon! I hope you are doing well. I know there's a new onboarding process that creates personal spaces for new users. We have a feature request so admins could disable that feature. I'll share it below.

Thank you again for bringing this up, and take care!
